The laboratory manual, written and classroom-tested by the author, presents a selection of laboratory exercises specifically written for the interests and abilities of non-science majors. There are laboratory exercises that require measurement, data analysis, and thinking in a more structured learning environment, while alternative exercises that are open-ended "Invitations to Inquiry" are provided for instructors who would like a less structured approach. When the laboratory manual is used with Physical Science, students will have an opportunity to master basic scientific principles and concepts, learn new problem-solving and thinking skills, and understand the nature of scientific inquiry from the perspective of hands-on experiences. The instructor's edition of the laboratory manualcan be found on the Physical Sciencecompanion website.
